September 23, 2017: Hiked zero miles, ran four
Another cold morning. Another great run. Colton still wasn’t feeling too well so he slept in. After breakfast and another relaxing morning we took the dogs for another walk.
We sat in my mom’s hot tub, hoping to kick Colton’s cold out of his system. Both our mom’s swear by essential oils so we took their advice and Colton tried putting some oregano oil on his throat. Except we didn’t know that it’s supposed to be diluted first. He put a drop in the back of his throat and then spent the next five minutes coughing and trying to drink anything he could to get the burn to go away. Whoops.
We went back to Colton’s parents’ house and ate some lunch and watched college football. I thought my stomach could handle some simple eggs, sausage, brussel sprouts, and a croissant, but of course it hurt my stomach, like everything is lately.
Jim had made the first fire of the season inside and it felt great to be so warm and toasty.
Colton took full advantage of a comfy house.
We had burgers and salad for dinner and some amazing brownies and ice cream for dessert and spent the rest of the evening watching the Oregon Ducks football game.
We’re hoping Colton wakes up feeling better tomorrow so we can head back down to the Sierras now that Sonora Pass is open again and finish our last few days on the PCT for this year!
